About Blonde

The Blonde d'Aquitaine breed has been established in the UK for over 40 years and continues to gain much respect from commercial farmers be they suckler producers or dairy men.

The breeds principal attributes are ease of calving and excellent growth rates, terminating in a carcase with a very high killing out percentage and an exceptionally high ratio of lean meat to bone.

The breed is widely distributed throughout the UK and Northern Ireland and thrives well in both the harsher climes of the north and the sunnier south.

The society was founded in 1971 to improve and promote the British Breed.
